The Peace Research Institute Frankfurt (PRIF) has recently published the article, entitled "Nagorno-Karabakh: Why did the Second Armenia-Azerbaijan War Start?" authored by ADA University's Assistant Professor Azer Babayev. The author aims to enable the readers to deeply understand what has changed over the past years and what factors triggered eruption of the new phase of the conflict between Azerbaijan and Armenia.
"The arms race can commonly be a significant predictor of an increased probability of war. Yet, whether or not the arms race actually makes wars more likely, it can be argued that it helps increase their intensity (and duration). This is precisely the case in today’s war between Armenia and Azerbaijan, which has already been continuing unabated for over a month."
The author provides a short guide to the complicated nature of negotiations started from the Karabakh War I to Karabakh War II.
